Are you kidding me?

I just noticed it's been awhile since I've posted. What would cause me to pull my "I'm in denial about the Manilow world" head out from under the covers and shiver in disbelief? A reality show about Manilow fans.

First of all, after watching some of those tacky "Housewives" on Bravo, this show would probably get the ratings. Silly women falling all over each other to get a handshake, a glance, an opportunity to sing with him. Not to mention the cat fights that occur within the fan world and the outrageous behavior at the shows. It might make for some really good (and sickly perverted) television watching.

Secondly, what type of fan would be interested in going on this show--knowing full well they would not be painted in the most positive light? Oh right...I forgot that we're talking about Manilow fans.

In conclusion, if this is legit (and who knows if it is), any self-respecting fan should stay far, far away from this one. If you have a desire to be on television, find another venue. There is always an opening on Wife Swap!

Back to hiding under the covers,
Texas Fan

To put it simply - I agree. I cringe at the thought of all those "contestants" attempting to be the "winner". Yikes...can you say "who's the 'brain' behind this lame-brain idea?"

It's advertised as "Do you know all there is to know about Barry Manilow?" Only Barry knows about Barry, and fans have no right to think they "know" him. This would be a disaster in the making and I can only imagine who would want to partake in such a series. There are probably plenty of "desperate housewives" out there who would take the chance. It would make me not want to reveal that I am a Barry Manilow fan only to be looked upon as some sort of screwball. I just hope it's not in high def. Eeeewww

I shudder to think of such a reality show, but looking at what is already out there - should we really be surprised? Reality shows are taking over and there is no way they could be real because real life is actually pretty boring EXCEPT in the Manilow World. Come to think of it the idea isn't too crazy, it would probably garner great ratings, and for ever is crazy enough to try out and better yet have cameras following them around. More power to them, the editing and the hoopla will make them look more idiotic that anyone can ever imagine. I have my thoughts on who would be the brain child behind it if this ever came to pass.

I was just in Vegas this weekend. The 'front row only' bunch would fit the bill for this show. They don't seem to have anything else to do with their time(or money).WOOHOO Sex God etc etc.

"Front row only" bunch? That's a good one. Hmm, who could they be? I bet TPTB have their number.
